Field Trips

When planning a field trip to Andersonville, please consider the following:

  • Ranger-led field trips are offered on most Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the school year.
  • Groups visiting on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays should plan to self-guide. Also on any day that you have limited time, or a group that exceeds tour limits then you will want to plan for a self-guided visit.

Please read our 2014-2015 Field Trip Planner for more information on program offerings and details for planning a field trip to Andersonville.
